VPS resilience to hardware failure
hi, we have a large VPS with a load of sites on it running WHM. It’s snapshotted weekly and the accounts are backed up to S3 overnight. The DBs are run on the same server.
I’m concerned that we have a single point of failure. Does anyone know how resilient the DO VPS platform is? I’m confident the VPS image is run from a RAID disk array, so it couldn’t be brought down by a disk failure.
How about if the power supply, or motherboard, or network card fails on the physical server that’s hosting the VM. What would happen?
What are other people’s experiences of failure/recovery on DO VPSs?
